Man at desk


Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is levied on the disposal of chargeable assets by any UK-resident individual – the laws around it, however, can be pretty complex. That’s where we at Lyel Accountants come in.

As a specialist tax consultancy, we offer tailored Capital Gains Tax strategies to individuals in Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield and anywhere else across the UK. So what is Capital Gains Tax? Essentially, it’s a tax on the profit when an asset that has increased in value is sold or disposed of. Such assets could include:
  • Shares not held in a PEP or ISA
  • A business asset such as plant and machinery
  • Property apart from your main home
  • Your main home in any of the following circumstances if:
    • It hasn’t always been your main home
    • You have let it at any point in time
    • You’re using it as a place of business
    • It has a significant amount of land attached to it
  • Most personal possessions that are worth more than £6,000
The rate of Capital Gains Tax levied will depend on the nature of the asset being sold and your taxable income. Whether you’re selling off your entire portfolio of assets or just a part of it, we at Lyel Accountants would be happy to help you out. Get in touch
